My whole heart for my whole life. ~French saying used on poesy rings
A man had given all other bliss,
And all his worldly worth for this,
To waste his whole heart in one kiss
Upon her perfect lips.
~Alfred, Lord Tennyson
How my memory treasures every sweet stray moment of our past — handclasp, kiss and heart-beat, the passion of those dear unfathomable eyes, the rustle of garments, the gliding steps and lingering farewells! ~Byron Caldwell Smith, letter to Kate Stephens
[L]eave a kiss but in the cup,
And I’ll not look for wine.
~Ben Jonson, To Celia
Two souls, one heart. ~French saying used on poesy rings
What I do and what I dream
as the wine must taste of its own grapes.
~Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Lastly, do I vow, that mine eyes desire you above all things. ~Catherine of Aragon, 1535
…I must see you again — die in your arms or live in your embrace. ~Byron Caldwell Smith, letter to Kate Stephens
